VBA Code Cleaner

For many years Rob Bovey has published his VBA Code Cleaner for Microsoft Excel.

Now, one can get the same capability  for Microsoft PowerPoint.

It is a 'brute force' conversion of Rob's work and the result is *very, very* lightly tested.  So, please backup your PPT or PPTM file before using this add-in.

In the interest of getting this work into the hands of the community, there is no good installer or even documentation on how to install the add-in.  But, since it is meant for the experienced developer, s/he should be comfortable installing the add-in.

Download the zip file and unzip the included files into a folder of your choice.  I would recommend the AddIns folder on your machine.

In PP2007 or later load the add-in VBA CodeCleaner (Ribbon UI).ppam.  Then select Developer tab | Maintenance group | Bovey's Code Cleaner button.

In PP2003 or earlier load the add-in VBA CodeCleaner.ppa.  Then, select Tools menu | Clean Project... menu item.


The only documentation is what is available in the program

Price: This add-in, which is essentially Rob's add-in adapted for PowerPoint, is free

More Information

There is one spurious error that needs to be tracked down.

Occasionally, clicking the Developer | Maintenance group | Bovey's Code Cleaner button results in a 'Macro not found' error.  Clicking the button again works just fine!
